Located just outside of Asheville, this contemporary residence demonstrates sensitivity to the surrounding agrarian landscape and features numerous green technologies including a geothermal field for heating and cooling, rainwater catchment for irrigation and toilet fixture use, a tankless hot water heater, and a green roof among others.

The green roof is located off the main floor of the home on top of the lower guest wing and reaches out to mountain views. The green roof system chosen is a semi-intensive built up system (6? growing medium depth) and is planted with a variety of native and ornamental perennials and grasses to unify it with the surrounding landscape. Plant species include Cerastium alpinum lanatum, Oenothera berlanderi ?Siskiyou?, Talinum calycinum, Thymus praecox ?Pink Chintz?, Stachys byzantina 'Lambs Ear Silver Carpet', Festuca glauca 'Elijah Blue', Sporobolus heterolepis, Campanula rotundifolia ?Olympica?. The green roof will be accessible to the owner and guests. Installation was completed in late August 2009.
